Description

At the frozen bottom of the world, a madman sits. Supposedly a weather monitoring installation, TESLA can actually control the weather...and Greg Simpson, TESLA's designer, isn't about to give up that control to anyone. Not the international agribusiness corporation that bankrolled TESLA; not the US military, who have made a secret pact with Simpson to turn weather into a weapon; and certainly not Tess Beauchamp, an upstart weather scientist who had the nerve to disobey Simpson ten years earlier. Simpson's removal triggers planetary cataclysms: massive storms, earthquakes, and tsunamis are just the tip of the iceberg. Unless Tess and the equally brilliant Nik Forde can crack TESLA's programming, Mother Nature's fury will quickly turn the Earth into a lifeless husk.

"Compelling reading." --George Stephanopoulos, Anchor, "Goo""d Morning America"

"Excites and entertains from first page to last. Not just a great thriller, it's sometimes funny and always deeply human." --Bill Cosby
"Evans skillfully wields his knowledge of meteorology to develop weather as a compelling and fearsome character in the action of the story. Bad weather has never been this good!"
--Sam Champion, ABC-TV Weather Editor

"Bill Evans is my one of my favorite weather men. When he combined Nicholas Tesla, a lab in Antarctica and folks who are trying to weaponize the weather, then I knew I was in for a great ride. Buy this book!" --Whoopi Goldberg
"An intercontinental thriller that imagines how future atmospheric discoveries could tip the balance of corporate and political power. New York's weather expert creates meteorological mayhem with a dose of reality you can only get from a weather expert."
--Brian Norcross, Hurricane Specialist, The Weather Channel
""Dry Ice" teeters right between between science fiction and science-fact. Just like a tornado, it takes you in its grip immediately and then scares the hell out of you." --Dave Price
"A wild ride from beginning to end. Antarctica may be thousands of miles from you, but you're not safe. Look out, it's "Survivor: Earth.""
--Paul "Cubby" Bryant, morning radio personality, WKTU-FM, New York
"Bill Evans has written an excellent techno-thriller with an amazing sense of detail. The tension builds throughout." --Jeffreys
